Watch the amazing moment this man sees again after spending half his life in darkness
Larry Hester was diagnosed with retinis pigmentosa in his early 30s when there were no known cures, and has spent the past 33 years as a blind man.
Thanks to advances in technology, Larry now has a bionic eye which contains an electronic device to send light signals to his brain.
His first words after being able to see light are: ‘Yes. Oh my goodness. Yes!’ His wife is also overjoyed, and rushes to give him a kiss in this touching moment.
Larry won´t be able to see fully, but the bionic eye is a groundbreaking invention and will at least help him to make out objects so he can distinguish between them.
